Ogden Raptors takes 7 runs in 9th place, rally for 12-8 victory at Great Falls on 5th straight win | Ogden Raptors

In the daily baseball game, even good teams sometimes deliver drowsy performances, have to face tough pitching, or just don’t have it.

After a hot start to the season, the Ogden Raptors seemed to have such a game on Saturday and were 8-3 behind Great Falls Voyagers after seven innings.

Then the locks opened. The Raptors scored two runs in the eighth and seven more in the ninth to take a 12-8 win and improve to 6-1 that season.

The crucial tip of the ninth was a story in itself. Tim Susnara, Nick Michaels and Owen Taylor started the frame with consecutive doubles and made it 8-7. Josh Broughton, who had two outs against two batters on the hill in game eight, took a stroll. This produced Raul Shah, who cracked a homer with three runs and gave Ogden the first lead of the night at 10: 8.

Cory Wills took a walk, Jakob Goldfarb doubled it, and Susnara eventually doubled in Goldfarb for his second two-bagger of the inning and for the final 12-8 lead.

Reza Aleaziz gave up a harmless single and otherwise scored a flawless save at the end of ninth place. Broughton won on the hill.

The two teams will play again on Sunday at 4 p.m. and end the six-game series on Monday at 1 p.m.
